Our big annual all-gallery show opens today! Beloved California VI: Twenty Painters with a Passion for Place features more than 60 wonderful works by our entire roster of Northern California landscape painters. Nearly all the paintings are on view in the gallery for the first time.
With so many beautiful paintings to choose from, it wasn’t easy to decide which to put on the postcard and poster (at right) advertising the exhibition. But we finally settled on Richard Lindenberg‘s 24″ x 24″ painting “Sonoma Coast.” Its grandeur perfectly expresses the spirit of the exhibition. Only one little problem: it needed a frame that was up to that grandeur. So Trevor made this 4″ wide carved cushion complemented with a narrow low cove at the sight edge, and punctuated with a parcel gilt chamfer. The frame’s nice and deep, with an elegant cut in back that sweeps out beyond the outside edge of the face. The profile was designed to serve the rounded but rugged forms that Richard captured so beautifully.
Again, Beloved California VI opens today—the weatherman promises clear, sunny skies!—with an open house from 1 to 4. We hope you’ll come! (Masks and vaccines required. Number of guests allowed inside at one time limited to twenty.) Visit the Beloved California VI webpage to see the entire show, including several others by Richard Lindenberg.
